generation face nothing comparable to that of lawmakers in the mid-19th mid-19th century as the united states was on the bring of breaking apart, and the book that we're about to hear about, america's great debate,tles the story of the compromise of 1850, which helped to resolve at least for a while, the conflict over how to bring the vast mexican territory into the united states. the reviewer who did this review for the washington post happened to be don graham, the chairman of the washington post company, who is a student of history. he called this book original in concept and stylish in execution. the compromise that mr. bordewich will tell us about resulted from some of the most creative legislating that the country has ever seen, although mr. bordewich will be quick to point out that the compromise was also deeply flawed. but it did prevent an earlier breakup of the union. this is also a story that includes a magnificent cast of characters. befitting the epic struggles that played out during the course of the great debate. this is the third work be fergus bordewich which explores how sla
-- of our warriors have been wounded. romney thought of the decision of the president of the united states, we have other countries working with us, nato and afghanistan. the president organized it. all 50 of them said it is time to hand over responsibility to the afghans and bring our 90,000 troops home. what did romney say? he said, that was a mistake. i have seen these warriors. i have traveled in and out of afghanistan and iraq over 20 times. i have seen these kids -- not kids, i have seen these men and women. i have been in the operating base above the mountains and the valley with six kids getting shot at every single night. cold and people off. i have been out there in those armored humvees, the scorching desert. i wish every american could see what i saw on the strips. they raise their right hand with a recruiter and said, i want to join, knowing almost certainly that they would go to iran or afghanistan. -- iran or afghanistan. this is one of the finest generations in the history of america. they should be recognized. and they are.

privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going

. as a republican, she was in the minority. look at the trend lines in the united states. in the post world war ii, unions were necessary. the gis came home, they needed jobs. they seem to have a place in society. now, if you look at the trendlines, they are against us. we are against china, south america. a week, the people, are buying that. we are buying things for those countries. just follow the trend line. if you notice the of unemployment reports over the last couple of months, there has been a steady decline in union membership as cities and states have shed public-sector employees across the board. host: what is your bottom line for mike williams? caller: i know mike is trying to drum of union support, but at the end of the day, in my opinion, unionization in the u.s., in the public and private sector, is on the decline. host: mr. williams? guest: several points that i would respond to. first, i will not make any excuses or apologize for the past errors of organized labor. work practices where you have to bring in three people to bring in a light bulb as an example -- i am in construction.
: former president of the united states, bill clinton, his speech hasn't been vetted by the obama team. all of the speeches except for clint eastwood. we want to make sure they stay on message. is it another loose cannon and look at what bill clinton said in the last three months, he's disagreed on major policies like extending the bush tax cuts and not having a millionaire's tax. the president wanted that. and he said romney had a stellar business career. i >> brian: he writes long hand on yellow paper. it is not like can i go on long hand. i am writing it out. they have an idea roughly of what he's going together. he's confident yet nervous about the content. >> steve: i read that on cbs and i read that the senior democrats are nervous. bill clinton and barack obama do not like each other and there is a blockbuster report out of the new yorker that has a quotation from 2008,oon arcticle by rina liza, bill said to ted kennedy when he was trying to get kennedy to support clinton. a few years ago he would be carrying our bags, referring to the president of the united states. it is out there
. second term as president of the united states of america. their sales pitch at their convention down in florida. >> boo! vote. i have to say, it was something despite all the challenges we face in this new century, we saw agenda out of last century. you might as well have watched it on black-and-white tv with some rabbit ears. it should have been on nick at nite. if you did not dvr it, let me give you a basic recap of what they said. good the economy is bad. it is all obama's fault, and governor romney has the secret to creating jobs and growing the economy. they spent the most time on me. they were talking about me, and there was a lot of hard truths nobody bothered to tell you what romney had his chance to let you creation, he did not offer you a single new idea. policies that have been sticking it to the middle class four years, and after the convention governor romney came here to ohio, and he said he is going to be the coach that leads america to a winning season. playbook. on first down, he hikes taxes by family with kids in order to pay roughness to me.

of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
demonstrated a willingness to tackle long- term debt problem of the united states. i think he is prepared to do that and prepared to push through a plan if we make some amount of progress in this election, but i assume he will be a great second-term president. >> i agree with melody, i think the election will be very close, but i believe the president will be reelected, because i do not think this country wants to go back to the policies being advocated by the mitt romney/paul ryan ticket to a place where we're talking about reducing taxes on middle income people. a place where we're reducing regulation in a way that opens us up to the same abuses that got us into the financial crisis that led to the recession we are still climbing out of. i do not think women want to go back to a place where health care choices is something that is problematic. where our environment is at risk, because we do not have an energy policy that recognize the needs for clean, alternative sources of energy. i do not think the country wants to go back to that place. i do a thing when the president reelected, one of the
platform when it comes to the critical relationship between the united states and israel. what's going on? we'll have details. eeeee! yeah. i get all my friends' pics as soon as they take them. really? you just missed an awesome dance off between the dads. oh... wow!

of the united states. and so the enthusiasm and the passion was there. inside the room. it's a bigger convention as other folks have pointed out. there was more energy in the room to begin with. then you had these great speakers and nobody was really saying look at me, i'm going to be the next president of the united states. at least not yet. >> julian castro i thought made a real bid to be the first latino, potentially, president of the united states. >> there's no question there will be a lot of talk here about 2016. >> not yet. >> the main focus is on 2012 without a doubt. democrats were not mistake free today. their platform does not mention god. they changed that from four years ago. israel, jerusalem is the capital and israel is our strongest ally. a lot of people are going to scratch their head. why would you make those changes? we're trying to get answers on that. >> i also can't understand, why would you remove the word god? why would you deliberately allow the republicans to come in and go to all their base and say, look at this guy. he's removed the word god. >> we don't know the answ
of the united states. >> there is a coordinated effort to make it about romney and whether or not he should speak. whether or not he should say anything about it. whether or not it is presidential for romney. we're only supposed to have one president now. at times like this. well we don't have one unless romney speaks up. >> jennifer: so they were so happy. mission accomplished! for them. and therein lies the problem. while president obama and secretary clinton spoke about the crisis with steady, seriousness, they exuded calm, they had clarity and strength, mitt romney, by contrast, was prematurely hyperventilating, maybe in response to the most extreme voices in his party. his campaign was in panic mode. and an international crisis was brewing and who did he listen to? could it have been the likes of rush limbaugh and laura ing graham and other neocons on his team? president obama was presidential and strong. mitt romney and paul ryan looked like bit players in top radio's amateur hour. stature, diplomacy steadiness?
produce all sorts of nuclear missiles getting ahead of the united states in defense in a way that was so dangerous that we might lose the cold war. kennedy said that over and over again. one of the reasons he won election in 1960. he got into office with access to intelligence and realized soviets are way behind, extremely behind the united states. there is a missile gap in favor of the united states so the problem was kennedy and campaign said we need to increase defense in order to make of this problem and he was committed to that. in 1961 the largest defense buildup in human history and the results to a great extent, one of the ways he dealt with that, and a large portion of humanity to death. >> when did crucial of -- >> guest: he was high on solid leadership but when we went to dinner at stalin's, never knew when the car came back whether it would take us home or to the gulag and it did take some people to the gulag but not crucial of. stalin died in 1953. there were two leaders who were essentially joint leadership. khrushchev and malenkov. by 54-55-56, crucial of was the supreme l
working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli
, it is at the united states and the so-called t-5 plus 1, a group of counselries meeting with negotiation with iran over the last several years. you know, i think president obama has been clear what his red line is. his is iran will not acquire a nuclear weapon. if they make a move in that direction, the u.s. will use whatever options necessary. israel has a different red line. they try to nudge the negotiators and the other international parties. >> shannon: you mentioned the president and his red line. he has taken criticism this week from the g.o.p. official nominee, mitt romney. let's tick a listen at what he had to say this week. >> every american was relieved the day president obama gave the order and seal team 6 took out bin laden. on another front, every american is less secure today because he has failed to slow iran's nuclear threat. >> doctor, he did praise him for taking out bin laden but said that the president has failed when it comes to this particular issue of the nuclear threat. we are also getting news that iran has signed a deal with north korea to share laboratories and technolo

[ applause ] he did it because he believes that here in america our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine. our kids should be able to see a doctor when they're sick and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or an illness. and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. that's what my husband stands for.

lady of the united states. she's here at the time warner cable arena. she's now at the podium the right there. you can see she's getting instructions, trying to begin to get a little feel for that stage up there. the teleprompter that will eventually be there. she's going to deliver a major address here, obviously, in charlotte at the democratic national convention tomorrow night. that's what the first lady will be doing. she's been here now, i'm guessing for at least 45 minutes to an hour. she was up in the sky boxes walking around, doing some television interviews, and just beginning to get a flavor for what's going on. this will be a very important address. she's very popular out there. has high, high approval and favorability numbers. there's no doubt about that. and she's going to be under enormous pressure to deliver that big speech tomorrow night. we're here in "the situation room" watching everything that's going on. gloria borger is here. brianna keilar is here. as we see the first lady, this is normal. everybody does this. all the big speakers, at some point, they come in here
of the united states, you can get in touch with us via social media, twitter, and the address there # csspan wa. the facebook.com/c-span or journal@c-span.org. this is an editorial, a piece in "the washington post" with the headline -- "after the party is over." he's talking about what he saw in the republican convention. he says conventions can be memorable events. they're known to energize the party faithful. they can convert never heard-of, barack obama into celebrities. modern day political conventions produce a steady stream of informercial, rather, during primetime all without paying for coverage. conventions have their pitfalls. these affairs have, on occasion, slipped off message, producing sometimes unanticipated adverse events. the violent clashes between police and protesters at the 1968 democratic convention nearly overshadowed the political rough housing on the convention floor. word of this week's incident, rather, in tampa in which two republican guests reportedly threw peanuts at a black cnn camerawoman saying, quote, this is how we feed animals is spreading like wild fire among
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
